JSC to host Extreme Scaling Workshop, Jan. 23-25, 2017
GCS NewsFlash 01/2017
GCS member Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) will host another JUQUEEN Extreme Scaling Workshop from 23 to 25 January 2017, providing selected application teams the opportunity to scale their codes up to 1.8 million hardware threads via exclusive access to the entire Blue Gene/Q at JSC. During the workshop, which takes place for the 3rd consecutive year, expert hardware, software, and support personnel will be available to assist the users with running codes at this extreme scale.
The workshop has been set up in light of the positive feedback from the 2015 and 2016 workshops, where seven code teams qualified for membership of the High-Q Club. Following the success of the prvious years, JSC, again, set aside sufficient time for performance analysis of large-scale executions and quantification of scaling inefficiencies.
Participation will be limited to a small number of application teams with codes that demonstrate good scaling potential, and where at least one team member will be present on-site for the workshop.
